A loan helped a family-owned business in Baltimore, Maryland to expand marketing, buy equipment and build a family legacy.
At the tender age of 9 I begin my entrepreneurial journey in elementary school simply selling pencils to my classmates. It was at this time I knew entrepreneurship was my destination. My dad started Lucas Special Services, a business to provide carpet cleaning services over 30 years ago and ten years ago we expand to power washing and deck staining services to residents in Maryland. Since the age of 5 I have been heavily involved in my family business and after 26 years my dad is passing the baton and I am becoming the CEO of the family business. I have a big vision for the future of the business consisting of hiring new employees, purchasing additional vans and my greatest accomplishment, creating our new stain removal product.
